11am-4pm, 01 Sept. 2018
Access Space, 3-7 Sidney St, Sheffield S1 4RG

A session for live coding visualists (at any level) lead by Antonio Roberts (aka hellocatfood), to talk about their tools and how they perform, with focus on Algorave visuals.

Will include demonstrations of live coding systems (including Hydra, PraxisLIVE, Livecodelab, PureData/GEM), discussions, followed by hands-on workshops.

A core part of the session will be discussion around key questions for live code visualists; how do you pace yourself in a performance? Should we aim to build up slowly or go straight in with loud visuals? How much can you truly respond to the music? Is it important to show the code, and how does it fit with the musician's projection?
